The list of celebrities from Brooklyn is long and growing. I linked the list to Wikipedia from the Brooklyn Botanical Garden's walk of fame.It's an extensive list, and linking most of the names to their Wikipedia articles is quite a service. (I'm surprised there really is nothing on Wikipedia for Woody Guthrie or Joan Rivers.)
- "Harvey Keitel or Woody Allen? Brooklyn's Most Famous?"
I can say this is about my least favorite feature of the Gardens. It's just odd.
The path itself is in a weird place. I never seem to need to go between the two places it joins. It goes behind the Japanese Garden, from one entrance to the other. I'd rather walk through the Japanese Garden.
Walking along the path, the stepping stones themselves are just distracting. If only there were some nice views or vistas along the way. If there are, I've missed them because I keep reading the stones!
BBG notes that "New names are added to Celebrity Path each June on the borough's annual Welcome Back to Brooklyn Day." So we can look forward to more distractions later this year.
Any Brooklynites you would want to add to the list?
